Details

March's Leeds Art Walk features a preview of Leeds Arts University’s new exhibition, _Yoko Ono at Leeds_, paired with a one-off screening of Jonas Mekas’ 16mm film, _Zefiro Torna, the Life Of George Maciunas_.

Chief proponent of the Fluxus movement, Yoko Ono is known for her performance and instruction-based artworks. In 1966 she performed at the former Leeds College of Art's Vernon Street building. Yoko Ono at Leeds focuses on a selection of her interactive installations and political open calls.

_Zefiro Torna, the Life Of George Maciunas_ (1992, 34 min) is Jonas Mekas’ intimate portrait of George Maciunas, founder and coordinator of Fluxus. Bringing together material shot between 1952 and 1978, the film records Maciunas and his community (including Ono) at work and play, as well as the days prior to his early death from illness in 1978.
